  • Can you identify carbohydrates, lipids and proteins from diagrams?
  • Can you explain the role of condensation and hydrolysis reactions between amino acids and polypeptides, between mono, di and polysaccharides, and between fatty acids, glycerol and triglycerides?
  • Can you compare the use of carbohydrates and lipids in energy storage?
